Also Henriette Mantel who, besides playing Alice on The Brady Bunch movies, is an accomplished author, comedy writer, and activist.

Then we are joined by Investigative Journalist Robin Urevich who reveals that Trump’s pick for Secretary of Labor Andrew Puzder is no friend to the worker. Robin’s work is a joint effort of Newsweek and Capital and Main. Her article uncovers an alarming number of reports of federal racial discrimination and sexual harassment claims filed against Puzder’s fast food company CKE and its franchisees, which, she writes, “read like stories from the 1940s or ’50s, before civil rights laws were ever enacted.”

David then simplifies the news coming out of Washington by urging listeners to visit www.5Calls.org. Calling is the most effective way to influence your representative. 5 Calls gives you contacts and scripts so calling is quick and easy. 5 Calls uses your location to give you your local representatives so your calls are more impactful.

Robin Urevich writes for Capital & Main an award-winning online publication that reports from California on the most pressing economic, environmental and social issues of our time. Our mission is to expose threats to the public interest and advance progressive ideas and policies in the nation’s most populous state and one of the world’s most influential centers of commerce, culture and technology.

Winner of the 2016 Online Journalist of the Year prize from the Southern California Journalism Awards, Capital & Main has had stories co-published in more than 30 media outlets, from The Atlantic, The Guardian and Fast Company to Huffington Post, Salon and BillMoyers.com.

Working with top writers, editors and visual artists, they cover income inequality and the decline of the American Dream; the enduring power of corporate interests and the influence of business Democrats; climate change and the uneven rise of the green economy; the polarized battle over public education; race, law enforcement and incarceration; and the epic demographic changes foreshadowing the U.S.’s coming shift to a majority-minority nation.

Capital & Main’s advisory board includes former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, author Barbara Ehrenreich and Vice President Joe Biden’s former chief economist Jared Bernstein. Board members include American Prospect executive editor Harold Meyerson, journalist Erin Aubry Kaplan and professor and author Manuel Pastor.

Jan 24, 2017

Host of Cum Town, one of the funniest and most outrageously informative podcasts on iTunes. Also Comedy Writer Mike Leech describes his journey working in the mailroom at The Late Show with David Letterman to getting hired writing on the show.

Today’s topics include:

Writing cue cards for SNL, Is Ashley Judd a better ally for women than Madonna?

Letterman, How political satire creates community, Is Trump America’s latest 9/11? How politicians actually do keep their promises, How our votes don’t count so we should be out there protesting, The truth about totalitarian leaders wanting to get peed and pooed on, Pizza-gate,

Should you punch a Nazi?  Alt-Right Founder Richard B. Spencer was punched in the head this weekend. Some liberals, including former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau, delighted in this act of violence which left a humiliated Spencer with a black eye. Is our side losing the moral high ground when we resort to savagery?

What kind of father is Donald Trump? If all three of his children go into his business does it suggest they are cripples who couldn’t be hired by anyone else? With Jared Kushner getting sworn in as a top adviser to Trump we ask if nepotism violates America’s core tenets of personal responsibility and fairness.

Is it OK to remain neutral during a moral crisis? Why it’s important to get the numbers right on who attended the inauguration and who attended Saturday’s march.

Howie Klein organized today's congressional boycott of Donald Trump's inauguration. He is founder and treasurer of Blue America Pac which raises millions for progressive candidates. He also writes the Down With Tyranny! blog. 

On Inauguration Day we focus on eliminating the noise and keying in on who stands to benefit the most from Donald Trump's rise to power. We remind listeners that as an agent of chaos, Trump will distract us while our treasury is looted and our planet is poisoned by incompetent errand boys working for the richest one percent. 

Trump's cabinet is a murderer's row of murderers. On today's show Howie and David name names and tell you who to keep a watchful eye on.

They remind us how to apply the brakes during what can only be described as a slow motion car crash. Howie and David get specific, and remind us what all Americans can do to take back control of our national destiny.

He started an organization called CarbonWA which gathered signatures for to put a revenue-neutral carbon tax on the ballot for the Washington elections, 2016. This initiative, known as Washington Initiative 732, would impose a steadily increasing tax on emissions of carbon dioxide, and use that revenue offset other taxes. Washington relies on a sales tax for much of its revenue, making its state tax code one of the most regressive tax codes in the nation.
